To increase the U.S. Department of Labor's utilization of all types of small businesses, the Department's Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) sponsors small business Vendor Outreach Sessions (VOS). These sessions offer small businesses the opportunity to market their capabilities directly to agency program officials and learn about potential DOL procurement opportunities. Conversely, Department procurement officials can learn more about the diverse small business resources available to meet their procurement needs. Department of Labor agencies buy a wide variety of goods and services valued at approximately $1.9 billion each year. Each DOL agency has a responsibility for procuring its own goods and services in support of the agency's mission. GENERAL PROCEDURES Vendor Outreach Sessions are held in the Department of Labor Great Hall from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon. Online registration will be available approximately 30 days prior to each session. The address is: U.S. Department of Labor Frances Perkins Building (Great Hall) 200 Constitution Avenue, NW (between 2nd and 3rd Streets, NW) Washington, DC 20210 Follow-up meetings with agency representatives may be scheduled for a later date, if mutually agreed upon.
